The restaurant is cute but the service is not great. It took over 1 hour to get some eggs and toast. The eggs were not cooked well and they did not have other type of bread except for white bread.

Highly recommend by other travelers we booked a table at the pink elephant! On arrival the table wasn't ready what can happen of course but the majority of the staff wasn't showing any problem solving skills or hospitality. After we got an other table we ordered. The food was of average quality, pretty flat taste and not a lot of... More

As others have mentioned the menu isn't as substantial as some of the other restraunt's around the pink elephant. However the food is really tasty and inexpensive. We had a creamy chicken curry and kebab with the chicken on both being of good quality. Would recommend.

Went based on trip advisor recommendations, the service was very slow - took 15 mins to be given a menu. The menu, when arrived is pretty basic - no starters or desserts. But, when the food arrived it was really tasty - so would probably return to this place.
